Today we’re taking a trip down memory lane to kick off the first of our 2017 holiday broadcasts! On today’s broadcast you’ll hear from Charly Bliss, Emilyn Brodsky, Gracie And Rachel, and Rose Cousins.
Charly Bliss is one of those bands that immediately brings to mind a slew of favorites, especially for those of us who had their musical awakening in the 90s. Reminiscent of the awesomely fuzzy, poppy goodness of Veruca Salt, The Breeders, That Dog, and Letters To Cleo, the band proudly identifies their genre as “bubblegrunge” (was that a word back then? It’s likely, but either way it’s super appropriate for them right here and now) and does a killer job of nailing that vibe and improving upon it, updating the sound and look for the 2010s while still conveying that feeling of throwing a party in your teenage bedroom. Eve, Spencer, Sam, and Dan have a really great thing going on, and they stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, for this session. Guppy by Charly Bliss is available now from Barsuk Records. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.

Jane Weaver is a musician from Liverpool, England. As someone who runs a record label and plays in several groups, she is certainly no stranger to collaboration, but as a songwriter and performer she’s uniquely autonomous and largely responsible for everything you’ll hear on her solo output — though friends do lend a hand (or instrument) here and there as needed. Jane possesses an otherworldly voice, uniquely suited to her distinctly light yet powerful style which blends perfectly with both the electronics and traditional instruments employed in her songs. She stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn for this intimate look at her music. The Architect EP is available now from Fire Records. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.

Big Bliss is a Brooklyn band formed in 2015 by brothers Cory (drums) and Tim (vocals, guitar) Race, along with bassist Wallace May. The trio blasts out a furious sort of post-punk and indie rock that draws a bit on shoegaze (think perhaps a little Mission Of Burma here, a little Interpol there), and have been playing shows almost constantly since their inception. We finally got them to take a breather and stop by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn to show us what they’ve been up to. The “Fortune” single is available now from Exit Stencil Recordings.

Tracks are a Falling
Hyukoh is a juggernaut of the Korean indie rock world. Taking on K-Pop and proving that rock n’ roll and other international sounds are welcome in the pop culture scene best known for sugary sweet pop, they’ve climbed the charts and garnered considerable critical acclaim. While their retro-leaning fashion sense nods to something else, musically they run the gamut from gentle indie rock and folk to hard-hitting punk and rap touches. Extremely versatile musicians, and multi-lingual singers, Hyukoh is set for even further world domination. While in NYC on their first ever North American tour, they stopped by to share their music with us in this session, recorded live at Serious Business Music in DUMBO. Hyukoh’s 23 is available now. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.

Bringing you the best new indie albums in one spot. Turn up the music for the BTR Top 10 countdown. We’ll dive into the most played albums on the site based on what your favorite DJs are playing.
Normally we’d write some sort of semi-thoughtful description of the band here, but in this case we’ll let their Facebook bio do the heavy lifting: “sad13 (sad thirteen) is a cyborg dog astrally projected from the recent past to save the middle school dance. sadie dupuis is sad13.” That tells you pretty much everything you need to know. Also, they’re pop songs — just as sweet, sugary, and satisfying as the stuff you heard on the radio growing up, but much less terrible in the sense that they’re written in a way that takes on the negative portrayals of women we’ve grown way too accustomed to hearing and turns it on its head. We’d expect nothing less of Speedy Ortiz’s Sadie Dupuis, who’s earned a reputation as one of the best songwriters around these days. She brought the band by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, to share some tunes. Sad13’s Slugger is available now on Carpark Records. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.

In their own words, The Appleseed Collective is a “string-swing” band. They don’t quite fit into any specific genre, which suits them just fine, as each member adds their own influence and style to the mix. Featuring acoustic instruments and smooth vocals, the sound is reminiscent of something from an era long past while at the same time feeling fresh and new. The group, based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, is known for touring extensively and we caught up with them at The Back Room, a historic speakeasy in New York City that fits the band’s aesthetic perfectly, for a performance of “Bankruptcy Of The Soul.”
Honey isn’t that sweet sappy stuff you put in your tea, it’s a killer punk band from NYC here to make your ears bleed!

Seth Applebaum (also of Brooklyn psych-surf freaks, The Mad Doctors) is apparently pretty prolific when it comes to experimental, groovy, weirdo jams.

The massive band crammed themselves, horns and all, into Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, for this lively session. GFO’s Demos & Outtakes is available now.

gobbinjr (lowercase, despite what autocorrect will tell you) is the musical project of Madison, Wisconsin-native-but-currently-NYC-livin’ songwriter, Emma Witmer. Facebook says that her middle name is Jerk, but we don’t think it is. We also don’t really think she’s a jerk, even when her songs get kind of mean. How much of a jerk can you be if you name your band after your first bong? Exactly. Witmer’s music — recorded on her own — is pretty personal, but live she’s got a whole band to give the songs that extra energy and they stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, to play for us. Vom Night and Shea Forever are available now.

A Giant Dog is a giant step in rock ‘n’ roll–listen to their newest album on this week’s episode & a chat w/ frontwoman Sabrina!
Chicago trio Dream Version — Eric Brummitt, Alec Jensen, and Michael Kunik — have been perfecting their poppy, post-punk-inspired indie rock since 2013. Keeping instrumentation to the classic power trio setup gives the band a lot of room to play and experiment with their idea of pop music, pushing things further into the arty, experimental territory that makes them feel a bit more in line with The Fall than The Kinks. The music is deceptively smart in it’s simplicity, and the lyrics manage to turn personal questions and conflicts into rock anthems. The band stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to share their music with us. Fight Fair by Dream Version is available now. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.

Domino Kirke has returned. Her music career began early when she was “discovered” at just 17 and over the years she’s taken several turns through various projects and genres that have ultimately led to her current endeavor and a new record.  Her first release in 5 years — and first under her own name — it arrives with a heavy dose of inspiration from her friend and musical collaborator, Luke Temple. It’s worth noting that Domino comes from quite a unique family of talented folks: her father is the drummer from Free and Bad Company, her mother runs a SoHo boutique, and her sisters Jemima and Lola are both successful actresses. Domino stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, with guitarist Jen Turner to share this intimate take on some of her new music.
